Do you ever feel like something’s holding you back? Phone manufacturers have been stuck using Qualcomm Snapdragon chips for years, and while these processors may be powerful, they aren’t one-size-fits-all. That’s why the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro run on Google’s first in-house processor, the Tensor chip. But why is Tensor so much better for Google? Read More »
